May on the Meadow


It's gone from late winter gray to MAY!!

 The meadow comes alive with swallows and sandhills and hummingbirds
and geese and coyotes and deer


Our rescued honeysuckle is an ancient bush, still, she is giving us some blossoms this spring
as if to say "I like it here, I'm home."
 our greenhouse is giving us some early spring greens




 Willows and wildflowers just beginning to bloom
 An Osprey on the wing

 Pixie Cups and lichen reach for the sun
 and wild strawberries too
A beautiful time of year and spring could go on and on and on
It would be alright.

April on these 48 acres.

K.  I changed my mind.  I can't quit our Homestone blog.  :)  I just can't.  Especially at this time of year when there is so much beauty to record and share.
And so ... I'll continue on with our Warmth of Wood Blog and this 'home on the meadow blog' with perhaps a little less frequency.  



While it is now the second of May ~ I want to share some pics from April on the meadow.
This is such a spectacular time of year.  The arrival of spring.

 we pressed our little flat bottom boat into service to enjoy
 our naturally flooded meadow ~ which gives us a shallow lake for about a month this time of year.
  

 A wonderful and very different way to explore these 48 acres.

 Life is good.  We are so blessed ~ and ever thankful.
Soon, some 'May on the Meadow' pics.
and a quick moment with one of our late April arrivals.
